Sun out this morning, a welcome change, forecast ok but don’t trust it at all, farm will need a few days to dry out so hopefully picture a bit clearer by then. Kit 4th on both his rides at Stromsholm in Sweden yesterday, outsiders so connections delighted and seems there was a good party last night, love to go there one day but 4 circuits for two miles sounds a little sharp for my horses, you never know.

Enjoying the sun and grass.

Lucy good result with her consultant today, clean injury so should hopefully heal quickly and she won’t miss many rides at this time of year.

All progressing well at home as we scramble to have all the improvements ready by the end of the month, Mr and Mrs A having a quick trip to Ascot tomorrow, can’t wait, such quality racing and be interesting to see how Goffs first ever London sale goes this evening, a clever innovation and deserves to be a success which I am sure it will be. No tips this week you will be pleased to hear, won’t put you through that, but I do think Aidan O’Brien will have a good time, his horses weren’t right earlier on so there could be value there and Richard Hannon seems to have a strong hand, being a bit of a partisan I will also be supporting the Yorkshire trainers and indeed the Scottish

ones….
